Adam Sandler has been named Vogue Magazine’s ‘Fashion Icon’ for 2021.

His casual ‘schlub’ style has beaten the likes of Harry Styles, Lizzo and Britney Spears as the most-searched celebrity fashion trend setter on Google this year.

“He’s the unofficial ambassador of pandemic style,” the magazine quips.

And that’s pretty accurate.

The “Sandlercore” look of oversized t-shirts, XXL basketball shorts and Ugg boots is not only iconic – it’s comfy as heck.

The actor and comedian best-known for his juvenile sense of humour and goofball antics on SNL and in movies like The Waterboy, Billy Madison, The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates has had the same sense of style since his career began.

Appearing as the “everyman” in his movies – goofy, charming, aloof and in no way fashion-forward – makes Sandler IRL seem approachable, down-to-earth and unaffected by his celebrity status. As his wardrobe outwardly proves.

Vogue calls him a “fashion antihero”: he’s so famous he can live by his own standards of style, “which are low and comfortable.”

Sandler has started inspiring fashion trends through labels and social media.

As reported by Vogue, downtown label Praying photoshopped Sandler in one of their fits, complete with Twilight handbag:

Sandler even inspired Old Jewish Men designer Bryan Seversky to create ‘Sandler Shorts’ – oversize shorts designed to be worn both as athletic wear and lounge wear.

TikTok stars have also jumped on the ‘Sandlercore’ trend.

Influencer Tinx told Vogue earlier this year that she swears by both the “rich mom” and Sandler styles.

“Adam Sandler is someone I think a lot about when I get dressed,” she told the mag.

“How big can my T-shirt be; how long are my shorts? That’s very accepted in California too.”

Proving just how trendy Adam Sandler has been in 2021, the comedian went viral over an eight-year-old jar of pickles.

Sandler was photographed munching on pickles from the jar walking on the set of his 2014 film The Cobbler.

Said photos were used as evidence of his down-to-earth nature.

“Adam Sandler is worth over 420 million, no jewellery, no designer clothes. Just simply walking down the streets of NY eating a jar of pickles. You gotta love him! #Humble,” the caption read.
